Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2017
Posted by Admin, Sunday, January 8, 2017
Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) is celebrated on 9 January every year to mark the contribution of Overseas Indian community in the development of India.
January 9 was chosen as the day to celebrate this occasion since it was on this day in 1915 that Mahatma Gandhi, the greatest Pravasi, returned to India from South Africa, led India’s freedom struggle and changed the lives of Indians forever.
The PBD convention attracts overseas Indians from all over the world. More than 3000 delegates participated in the PBD in January 2017 in Bangalore. The PBD Convention features Plenary Sessions; an Exhibition; Cultural programmes and provides an opportunity to interact with other Overseas Indians, Policy makers, Political leadership and others and also to explore opportunities to invest in India.

Our honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had walked past the Satven stall on his tour of the exhibition.
Ajaysingh Goutam, Param Iyer, Srinivasan TR and Novi TP had participated in the event.
